My plan for the A - Z Challenge is to write every post as if it were a diary entry by a character from my WIP. Today's post comes from Freya Phillips.
Working for a soccer team sure limits my social circle. I spend most of my time with the team, and chances to make new friends depend on whether or not we're due any new staff members. It sounds weird when I lay it out that way. The opportunities should be endless with all the travelling and the endless supply of soccer fans.
I know I sound like I'm complaining, but I'm really not. Coaching one of the top teams in America is a dream, and I get to work with my best friend, Will. I love Will! In a strictly platonic way, of course. Okay, he is tall, dark and handsome, but he's also uptight, occasionally pretentious and if he spots a crease in his clothes, it ruins his day. I am too laid back to deal with that kind of drama!
But now I have a new friend, Leah. She just became the new physiotherapist, and more than that, she is my room mate! I can't even tell you how badly I needed a someone to share my apartment with. I can afford the rent alone, but if I don't have to, there is a lot less pressure on my bank balance! And Leah is awesome. She's very serious about her job, but when she relaxes, she's so funny and so sweet. She is SUCH a typical Brit, though. She has teabags shipped over from England so she doesn't have to drink our "vile American muck," and I often catch her looking around the apartment in a state of awe, like she can't believe she is in Los Angeles. I'm really looking forward to getting to know her better, and having many night of wine drinking and girl talk!
Just want to take this time to say thanks for your comments on my entries so far!! This character diaries idea came in a moment of madness, but it turns out, it wasn't so mad after all!
Because it is Easter and I have been working myself into a frenzy for the last few weeks, I am going to be taking the weekend off. I will continue my A-Z posts, and will comment when I can, but I mostly want to enjoy a little time away from the computer. If you comment over the weekend and I haven't been to your blog before, I will get to it when I am back on top of things next week!
Have a wonderful weekend!
